“Fine”

So let us not give up in doing what is fine, for in due time we will reap if we do not tire out.
================================
“MAINTAIN your conduct fine among the nations,” exhorted the apostle Peter. The Greek word translated “fine” refers to something that is “beautiful, noble, honorable, excellent.” In this day and age, it may seem hopelessly unrealistic to expect noble or honorable conduct from people in general. By and large, however, Jehovah’s people today have succeeded in following Peter’s exhortation. In fact, they are known the world over for their fine conduct.

This is particularly noteworthy when we consider the stresses and strains we face during these “critical times hard to deal with.”  Trials are part of our daily life, and opposition to the Christian way of life is common. In addition, while some trials are short-lived, others persist without letup, even increasing in intensity. Nevertheless, the apostle Paul admonished: “Let us not give up in doing what is fine, for in due season we shall reap if we do not tire out.” Just how is it possible to do—and continue to do—what is fine in the face of heartrending trials and unrelenting hostilities?
